may I suggest handmade ornaments?

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to meeee...a partridge in a pear treeeee!

It's a great time of year for cozy hand making. Partridge & Pear is the first pattern in my Twelve Days series of Christmas ornaments.

All the ornaments in the series are hand sewn and made from wool or wool-blend felt. And they are way easier to make than they look, thanks to a magical Sulky adhesive stabilizer.

Using the stabilizer (shown in action above) means no tedious pattern transferring or tracing. If you can do basic hand stitches and work with small pieces, you can nail these ornaments.

I have also curated wool-blend felt and floss color bundles which are sold by Benzie Design to go with the digital patterns!

All available Twelve Days ornaments are in my Etsy and Craftsy shops, sold singly and also in discounted bundles. It's an ongoing series, so stay tuned for new patterns coming!
